Triangulum is a five year €25 million Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Union to demonstrate cutting-edge smart city technologies and roll them out across the globe.
CURE and the University of Manchester are working with 23 European partners from urban municipalities, research institutions and industry to demonstrate ‘smart green growth’ – reducing carbon emissions whilst boosting the economy.
Over a five year period, Triangulum is transforming designated urban districts into smart quarters in three ‘lighthouse cities’ Manchester, Eindhoven (Netherlands) and Stavanger (Norway).
Concepts learnt will be transferred to the ‘follower cities’ of Leipzig (Germany), Prague (Czech Republic) and Sabadell (Spain).
The project’s Principal Investigator is Professor James Evans, with Dr Andrew Karvonen and Gabrielle Schliwa from CURE also involved.
